Inside the Kit

Each expertly curated DIY kit comes complete with everything you need to design + sculpt an original art piece, including:

  • Premium locally-made Ceramic clay for 1-2 people or 3-4 people (develops with dark speckles after kiln firing)
  • Step-by-step instructions - learn how to make a ceramic mug, pinch pot, hanging planter, or footed pot
  • Pro tools handmade in the USA from imported wood (1st subscription kit only)
  • Small smoothing sponge (1st kit)

Psst… add some color to enhance your piece with our Underglaze add-on

The Big Finish

Ceramic clay requires professional kiln firing to become waterproof/food-safe. Not sure where to find a kiln? No problem! We’ve taken all the guesswork out of this step by providing an interactive map of studio locations near you. Don’t need your pottery to be waterproof/food-safe? No kiln near you? Simply let your decorative ceramic clay piece air dry. Handle with care: it will remain very delicate + will dissolve if you get it wet (even after drying).

Sculpting Sustainably

We’re helping to create a world in which we don’t need to sacrifice the environment in order to get crafty. We curate every kit with the planet in mind, from the locally-sourced clay and tools handmade in the USA to naturally-based paints and eco-conscious packaging. We also seek to partner with suppliers who share our values by operating on 100% solar power and offsetting their energy usage with renewable energy credits. When you’re finished sculpting, make sure to visit our sustainability page for details on recycling and disposing of all eco-friendly packaging elements.

So many little extras that make this an extra wonderful experience

I loved the idea of make-at-home pottery and this exceeds expectations. It's so relaxing and at the end you've been creative, unplugged, and made something functional. I can also see myself sending these as gifts, not only for bdays but also for get-well presents or if someone is in a slump. Plus there are so many little extras that make this an extra wonderful experience like detailed directions, fun graphic design, functional and environmentally friendly packaging, and lotion for dry potter's hands. Definitely order asap.

Brings so much value to my life!

I didn't realize how much fun I'd have, or how therapeutic and relaxing it would be, to regularly make pottery. Plus the kits always are curated really well, which sparks my imagination and keeps things feeling fresh. Highly recommend for yourself or as a gift. Even if you don't think you're creative, you probably just haven't found your outlet yet. This could be it! Everyone I know who has purchased is really, really happy with their PwaP membership and has found a spark of enjoyment within them they didn't know would be there.
